An essential part of Columbia University’s Mission is “to support research and teaching on global issues, and to create academic relationships with many countries and regions. It expects all areas of the University to advance knowledge and learning at the highest level and to convey the products of its efforts to the world.”

Supporting this mission often requires students, faculty, and staff to travel outside of the United States. Whether it be for research, conference presentation, study abroad, or other purposes, those on Columbia Travel have a support system at the University to provide the tools needed for diligent pre-trip planning, and assistance in the event of an emergency abroad.

All affiliates participating in international Columbia Travel must follow the pre-departure requirements described in the International Travel Planning Policy. These requirements can include, but are not limited to, trip registry and a pre-trip itinerary review. To determine your next steps, navigate the site using the menu above.
